Crime And Punishment

The hardest thing for me to do is make sure that the punishment fits the infraction. As HoH,  I always try to be fair in punishment.

Two infractions took place since the last post that I want to address.

Number 1: Overspending on her personal budget for the week. We have agreed upon a $30 limit for personal spending. This doesn't seem like much but all of her needs are taken care of, I spoil her rotten and all she has to do is ask if she can have more money. She has overspent the past 2 weeks. Instead of reaching  for the paddle to spank her already bruised from Maintenance ass, I  decided to take all of her money away. I made her give me all of her cash and plastic. She has lost the privilege of spending for 2 weeks. This has almost killed her. Lol. To add a little salt to the wound, I decided to go to a few of her favorite stores while we were running errands to get the point across. I am sure this will fix any spending issues in her future.

Number 2: Texting while driving. This is a repeat offense as well. The first time she got quite the spanking and a lecture about the dangers and example she is setting for our own children. I don't think another spanking would have done the trick here so I got creative and took the advice from a forum I posted on. It said use technology to punish for technology. This made perfect sense. I chose to have her do a 4 minute Power Point presentation suitable to show our kids and share publicly comparing the rates of car accidents between texting and non texting accidents. The rate of Teens vs. Adults that text and drive. How to prevent it and what promises she is going to make to our driving age teenage daughters. This sounds like I let her off a little easy, but have you ever tried to make a presentation last 4 minutes? She is not very comfortable with the Power Point program either, so I know this will be a huge challenge. She was given a week to do this and she has 3 days left. I hope she doesn't disappoint.

My job is to take measures necessary to ensure our home is run smoothly, I am still new at DD and being the HoH and am  not sure if spanking should be the automatic go to whenever an infraction has taken place. I do maintenance spankings with her and took her over my knee just last night for being disrespectful. So spanking is never off the table, I just don't feel like it always fits the situation. I see the need for it and advocate Maintenance when necessary. I also need to take into consideration her bottom... it's still bruised from a very intense Maintenance spanking the night before these infractions took place, so to do it again may put her at risk of breaking the skin or blood clots. Taking spending away, revoking driving privileges, writing essays and rules over and over can drive the point home too.

Hope the week finds you all with Light, Love, Peace and Unspanked Bottoms! Be good folks!
Until next time,

Grateful & Meds

I broke out in massive hives over the past few days. Haven't figured out why yet, but that's a side issue.

Instead of writing about her incidents of rule breaking and subsequent punishment, I wanted to write about the care my beautiful wife has given me since the outbreak.

The first morning I had them, she ran a bath, washed me, filled me with Benadryl, and put me to bed where I slept for 8 hours.

I was feeling a bit better, so decided to go to work the next night. I made it 10 out of 12 before the hives got so bad I could not function. I think I took enough benadryl to put down a small elephant.

I called my wife to ask her to get me because I was groggy and lethargic from the Benadryl. She said yes without hesitation. At 4 in the morning, she picked me up from work and brought me home. I slept another 10 hours. After I woke up the hives were still there and beginning to travel down my throat. She took me to the hospital, sat with me and brought me home again where she planted me on the couch to sleep.

I woke up to her sitting next to me playing with our son. I felt really loved that she was still by my side even when I slept all day and am sick. I am truly grateful for her and everything she does for me. Man I am lucky.

Until next time folks,

20 times MIGHT be the charm...

My wife was definitely in a mood yesterday.

I spent most of the day in my workroom finishing projects. I kept hearing the baby cry and I asked my daughter where her mother was. Before my daughter could answer my wife yelled, "What do you want?". Not in a freindly "Can I pick you up anything from the market?" kind of way, it was the "I am so angry I could laser your face off!" kind of way. TOTALLY uncalled for and way out of line. To top it off, when I went to talk to her about the situation she walked away from me mid-sentence.

Now, we just had a maintenance spanking the night before that pushed some limits and she still has a stinging bottom from it. I didn't want to spank her for fear of actually hurting her or leaving harsh bruises.

I decided to have have her write out all 3 pages of our rules 20 times each before I get home from work in the morning. Maybe after so much writing, she will memorize some of the rules and hopefully not break them again.

I know she is trying, I know the house was in chaos yesterday and I know I wasn't available to her all day. Still no reason to yell at or walk away from me, I am still the HoH and will be treated as such.

Until next time,

Breaking Bad

Reading a text while driving, not asking permission from me for a daughter to break curfew...repeat offenses.
Undermining me in front of our kids. Offense #3. My wife is having a rough week.

Well punishment was definitely in order. I have been reading on new positins and using different implements. I don't think the wooden spoon had quite the effect I was going for because she broke the same rules again. This time I chose a leather belt of mine. I laid a pillow down for her knees, made her kneel across the couch and delivered the longest punishment to date.

Let's hope the sting from this punishment lingers the next time she is on the verge of breaking another rule.

Until next time folks,

Stress

Buying a car is a pain. Financing, insurance, and maintenance on the other car you already own takes it's toll on your level of stress. I get that.

I also am the HoH and will not be yelled at in the middle of the mall parking lot.
Rule broken. Punishment no doubt followed.

We are still new to DD and I am still exploring public discipline, so I decided to wait until the shopping was done, we were back home, and our baby was asleep.

When the time came we sat down, talked everything out and I gave her another bare bottom spanking. Hugely intense. She pulled away this time and I gave her 2 more whacks for it.  After the spanking, she wrote all of the rules out again and agreed to try and not let stress get the better of her.

I love my wife with all of my heart and soul and am so glad we are in this journey together for the greater good of our relationship and family.

Side note:
While shopping after "The Incident", I found a small journal and bought it for her. I asked her to start a punishment journal on the events that led to rules being broken, the punishment received and the steps needed to be taken to prevent it from happening again. She loved it....and had her first entry to write about.....

Until next time,

Consistency

Curfew on school nights is 10pm. This means kids are home, friends/boyfriends leave at/or before that time. Weekends and Holiday breaks the curfew is Midnight. Pretty fair I think. These rules have always been in place. I am a strict enforcer of such rules in my house.
Well, I work night shift and am not always here, so I expect my wife to uphold the house rules when I am not present. Friday night the kids started watching a movie with friends that ran over curfew. My permission was not asked to do so, and she told me the company left around 12:30. I told her my cell phone works just fine and hers does too. This is a rule broken.
Then the truth came out. She broke down and told me that the company left at 2:30am!
I was irate over 2 rules that had been broken. Breaking curfew without permission and even bigger, lying. While I thanked her for her honesty and even praised her for feeling comfortable enough to tell me, rules were still broken.
I have a ZERO tolerance for lying. This resulted in the first bare bottom spanking. I took a little while to calm down, talked with her about the situation and delivered her punishment.
I think with this being new she was maybe pushing limits. But, she found out the limits are not far. This was the most intense spanking I have delivered.
After, we reviewed the rules for the curfew, discussed the seriousness of the situation, hugged, and moved on with our day.
I'm hoping the sting on her skin deters her from breaking that rule again....
Until next time,

Day 2...

Welcome to Day 2. This has proven to be quite the learning experience for my wife. On the way to pick up one of our children, she read and answered a text message. HUGE RULE BROKEN! She came home, told me what she did, we discussed why she did it, and I decided the driving privileges were revoked until I go to work this weekend. This was met with a bunch of pouting and "bargaining".  I kind of let that slide considering this is only day 2 and told her to let it go or I will increase the punishment. Luckily for her, she calmed down. Later in the day she also went over on the spending budget without asking, this resulted in some whacks on her bottom.
I think she is surprising herself  at the amount of rules she has already broken.  I do appreciate the honesty she has in telling me she texted while driving.  I think I am a fair HoH, and in turn she is completely honest.
After dinner, we had a short discussion about the day and the results of the actions. We had a great evening again and woke up feeling refreshed.
Thanks for reading.
